I only played beta. The game would have made more sense if there was a "Over Arcing" story that groups of players could participate in to advance the story. All the individual solo "Main quests" were fine, but it was a rather huge snore fest watching other people interact while you're there stuck waiting. It made grouping with others boring as hell, or they skipped everything and missed the whole story.

They needed some overall group driven quest where people could participate much like they do in flashpoints (or whatever they are called), but made them stages in unlocking your classes abilities or unlocking content, ability to use new weapons or combinations of weapons. Something to drive people back into groups where waiting on others during the main quests wasn't so tedious because the story fit together with the "over arcing" story that encompassed all main quests to some extent.

This could have cut out A LOT of running around for your class main quests that held everything up....

Plus they could have put different over-arch outcomes for class combinations or choices, or whatever. Or even controlled content access via it, so you could open up different planets on the same side on different characters.


I dunno...it was cool for awhile, but eventually grouping with other people was very tedious because everyone had different quests and was on different parts. Or they were 20 minutes away but the only people looking to do that quest. Pure irritation instead of being fun.
